Essam El-Hadary Out Against Super Eagles

Published on: 24 March 2016

Experienced Egypt glovesman Essam El-Hadary has been ruled out of the African Cup of Nations qualifier against Nigeria on Friday evening.

El-Hadary sustained a calf muscle injury on Thursday during training and various reports in the Egyptian press have confirmed that his name has been excluded from the roster.

At this point, it is not clear the number of days he will have to spend on the sidelines or whether he would be available for selection next Tuesday in the reverse fixture against the Super Eagles.

El-Hadary has won four African Cup of Nations titles with the Egyptian squad, with the last coming in 2010.
